World Whisky Day this Saturday

I really like to be ahead of the game, thus (spookily enough) I started my own personal celebration about 10 short minutes ago.

'Tis only those lower class beer-swillers, that develop a hangover, laddie!

Gude whiskey is sipped, and tasted, and tickles ye throat and taste buds, like the loving touch of a fair highland maiden!

PLovett - Sssssshhhh!! Those Taswegian whiskey makers probably have Scottish ancestry, anyway!

Very glad and even somewhat reassured, to see that Ballantine's (my own tipple) are not an official sponsor to this event.

**** all those countries who stupidly, unreasonably and inconsiderately over-tax staples such as Scotch though. Perhaps we should be the ones who go out and torch public buildings on a weekend though.

If I may make a minor correction, it's "The best country in the world whisky day" this coming Saturday.

Strangely, I'm savouring a nice calvados as I type this. You have to share the love I suppose.

I intend to hold up the American side here. I will make it a point to have an evening with my good friend Jack Daniels. To be as correct as possible it is actually Bourbon, but still a member of the Whiskey family.

I invite all those to uphold the locally or regionally distilled spirit that meets the requirements to be called Whiskey.

Did not know there was a world whisky day, but I am up for it. Not sure what everyone else is into, but for me its the islay single malts. Got a bit of a collection here, but have to say for me the ardbeg that really gets my juices flowing.

Andy - There's some extremely varied opinions below, on your peaty Ardbeg malt.

https://www.danmurphys.com.au/produc...h-whisky-700ml

The nicest I've been able to afford is a bottle of 18 yr old Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve.
Added to filtered water with ice made from the same water, and it's verily, nectar of the gods.

Basil - That's a good move as regards the grandweans; and it sounds like you have the gift-givers sorted, as regards your birthday requirements. Had a birthday myself a couple of days ago, but no-one gave me any whiskey!

My ex-wifes' uncle, one Pat Mair, was the senior stillman at Fuddich for forty years.


'Twas he who advised to never pay for a malt more than nine years old.


He said that after that time the spirit derives nothing further from the cask.


He knew what he was talking about and I have heeded his advice ever since.

Yup, the peat is not for everyone.. I have in my collection, ardbeg alligator, lagavulin, bunahabhain (or however you spell it) and caol ila.

Best time to drink scotch, after a good meal. Forget your cognac and crap, a neat scotch is the perfect end to dinner. And a good end to dinner means more than one

Nothing wrong with a good crap after dinner.

Ardbeg Uigeadail or Laphroaig Quarter Cask for me, please.
